ScotRail has withdrawn its newest trains from service following the discovery of a technical fault. The fault was identified on Thursday on one of the Hitachi class 385 electric trains, introduced to the fleet in July. A spokesman for ScotRail confirmed all three 385 trains in passenger service have been removed for testing. It is understood this led to a shortage of carriages on the main Edinburgh-Glasgow line on Friday morning. ScotRail chief operating officer Angus Thom has apologised to any passengers whose journeys have been disrupted.
